On Friday, my brother, Adam, took part in an event through his gym to honor Christ's death on the cross. It was a two and a half hour intense workout designed to connect them to what Jesus did for us through that horrendous day of physical torture and crucifixion. Obviously they were not beaten or hung on a cross, but he said the workout was emotional, spiritual, and physically challenging, though worth it as it drew them closer to the Lord and what Jesus sacrificed for us.
He sent me this video clip of another gym that did this same workout last year:
I'm proud of A for finishing and for being committed to honoring Christ, even through exercise.
Praise the Lord for what we remember today. Christ the Lord is risen today!
